In 1998, she moved to Spokane, Washington where she graduated from Eastern Washington University with a BA in Biology. About Thirty years ago, she began what has become her passion and now her career: genealogy and genetic research. Her research has extended beyond her own family, to others that have been searching for their families. Currently she is enrolled in the National Institute of Genealogical Studies and upon completion in August will hold certifications in American Records, English Records and Genetic Genealogy. Lynda is the President of the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society, and a member of several other Genealogical Societies, and participates in several Surname Projects.

She leads the Refocus monthly group and has taught and will be teaching courses on Genealogy Research and Genetic DNA. In 2020 she started her own genealogical business “A Sapling to A Family Tree” (, with staff from several states in America and is focusing on teaching more classes and working with clients to help them further their genealogical understanding.
